New Reveal : 2010 Opel/Vauxhall Insignia OPC/VXR Sports Tourer

The all-new 2010 Opel Insignia OPC sedan (Vauxhall Insignia VXR in UK) came out from no where. A beautiful looking and modest sedan with a twin-turbocharged V6 that produces 325 hp is a performance sedan that is awesome from first impressions. Now though, another version of the OPC comes through.The all-new Opel Insignia OPC Sports Tourer (Vauxhall Insignia VXR Sports Tourer in UK) is actually the wagon version of the OPC sedan. As for looks, the Insignia OPC Sports Tourer has the same front fascia as the sedan, but the hatch at the back gives the OPC Sports Tourer a more settle stance. Inside, the OPC Sports Tourer gets the same OPC steering wheel are gear shifter as the OPC sedan.Like the sedan, the 2010 Opel Insignia OPC Sports Tourer is powered by a twin-turbocharged 2.8L V6, that packs 325 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 mph time in the OPC Sports Tourer is 0.2 seconds slower than the OPC sedan, at 6-seconds to 60 mph. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.The 2010 Insignia OPC Sports Tourer also sits 10mm lower than the regular Sports Tourer and features the new HiPerStrut system, “which reduces torque-steer and maintains negative camber during cornering.” The all-wheel drive system which incorporates a electronically controlled, limited slip rear differential (eLSD) can transfer more power to the rear wheels at moments.So the OPC Sports Tourer is the everyday wagon that can hold goodies and even a pet at the back, but with 325 hp, it's one very fast wagon. Best rival to the OPC Sports Tourer is the Audi S4 Avant.
